A man killed in a crash in Hawke's Bay yesterday has been named by police as Brian Faulie Bowden, 39, of Masterton.

Mr Bowden, a Wairarapa helicopter pilot, was a passenger in a van that collided with a 4x4 vehicle near the intersection of Kereru Rd and SH50 near Hastings.

Senior Sergeant Luke Shadbolt, said the driver of the van was in a stable condition at Hawke's Bay Regional Hospital.

The driver of the 4x4 suffered minor injuries.

He said the accident was still under investigation but it appeared the 4x4 failed to give way to the van at the intersection. No charges had yet been laid.

Wairarapa Helicopters managing director Tim Williams said he did not want to comment as the family were still trying to cope with their loss.
